to pay the piper is upon us, any clarity as to what implications are of america choosing the side of freedom fighters as the march toward revolution gets closer and closer to places like bahrain and saudi arabia who have to be wondering themselves if it gets hot on the streets in those countries, which side america, who is their strongest ally, is on. >> we're in a chess game right now. and five chess games. we have to consider the end game and each one is different. this is the reason the arab league you have seen initially support us and now back off. the truth is that arab league is more worried about internal control of their own countries and they could care less about democracy. i think that's one of the issues we'll have to face here head-on. when we talk about yemen, we talk about a situation where we've been very close to that government and a real threat there so we have to handle that with full regard to the fact that al qaeda is very active there. the saudis have been an ally. at times have been on both sides of the fence. the evidence has shown. and we've got to deal
. you will see it in the middle east. you'll also see it here in america. we'll stop in both places today. sometimes evil disguises itself pretty well until you get close to it and you're like oh, that's evil. then there is the evil that can make itself appear attractive. usually when it makes itself attractive, it's something that is easy to do. sometimes evil is hard to spot. sometimes it's easier. for example, mass union strikes in england. they are happening this weekend. they say about 100,000 people will be marching to protest government spending cuts and it will raise taxes. it will be something like the last protest, i'm guessing where they assaulted prince charles andca mill will l.a. where they -- camilla and shouting "off with their head" and trying to break in their car. clearly evil. let me show you the flier this weekend going on. here is the flier. see it. occupy london, stop the cut. see the horse? the horse represents power trampling over government. the people's power. what is their plan? the plan is to take over, strike, occupy, and release all hell. you know what
. we're america's solvency. everything you and i think of an america is up for grabs. this is a very, very sober moment for our country. i would ask you to, if you will, just pretend in your mind . pretend that you are a congressman or senator in the year 1850. in the year 1850 you might recall there was this 10,000-pound gorilla in the tent. people politically didn't quite know what to do with it. it was called the issue of slavery. and the way politics was working, you had the southern guys and the northern guys. and so the power was somewhat divided and the people that were congressmen and senators didn't know what to do with this huge gorilla which we call slavery. the issue they didn't know what to do with so they tried to step around it as best they could politically and say we will have one state come and be a free state. they will compromise instead of dealing with it head on the problem they had. 1852 there was a book, "uncle tom's cabin" and it increased the rhetoric and the issue of slavery. the gorilla is glowing and he's there and he's threatening. by 1857 the terrible d
to israel? is america on the wrong side? i think we are. two things to watch for. one, israel is about to strike back. israel can only take so much. nobody in the press is covering what is happening to israel. when israel strikes back, which they are being forced to do now, watch out. because the gates of hell are going to open up. and we will do nothing. and it's worse than that. as you will see tonight. the second thing i think you need to watch for a call to come from washington to pull out our troops in the middle east. which may be our best option, which would send the world in to chaos. but the other option will be soon to send more troops because of the humanitarian crisis. either way you slice it, our troops and our nation is at peril. tonight, i believe i can put some of this together in your head and some of these things will make sense. you won't like the answer. but they will make sense. ♪ ♪ >> glenn: hello, america. nothing in the world make sense. tonight we're going to shed some light on some of the issues and decisions that are leaving people confused. we have some
